Killing Joke returns next month with its first new music since 2015’s Pylon album, a four-track EP called Lord of Chaos that will feature two new songs and whose release will be followed by a tour of the U.K. this spring and festival dates through the summer.
Stream the title track below.
The Lord of Chaos EP, due out March 25 and available for pre-order on the band’s website, features the new songs “Lord of Chaos” and “Total,” plus what appear to be mixes of Pylon tracks “Big Buzz and “Delete.”
The industrial rockers’ tour dates — featuring the classic lineup of Jaz Coleman, Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker and Youth — are listed below, along with the Lord of Chaos tracklist.

I’m kind of drunk rn Matt but thanks for being on top of music news. I used to rely on Rollibg Stone and Blabbermouth but RS has a paywall now and Blabbermouth now is filled with trolls that make the Reddit work Antiwork Mod look like a decent human being lol. Anyways I luv the new site and the constant updates so keep it up! Soon I’ll have another request for Dark Wave soon lol.
